LumaPlay is a new line of World Class Speakers combining HD sound with Intelligent LED lights. Featuring bluetooth connectivity and our patent pending “FLUX” technology, LumaPlay speakers will change the way you experience music. 

The LumaOne is the ultimate 2.1 Speaker. It features a two way BI-AMPED powered system along with a 5" sub in the center, giving you a clear and powerful listening experience. Not only will you blow away your friends with the sounds produced by the LumaOne, but you will entrance them with the visual light show. Our patent pending FLUX technology will bring your music to life through the Intelligent LED system incorporated into the speaker. With our FLUX technology, the lights on your LumaOne will pulse to the beat of whatever song you have playing. Whether you are throwing a party at home, setting the mood in your apartment, listening to your favorite playlist at the office or any place else, the LumaOne is guaranteed to change the way you and your friends experience music.

Detailed Specs:

  • Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity
  • Two Way Bi-Amped System
  • 5" Sub with dedicated 50w amp
  • Passive Radiator to help release bass frequencies 
  • 2.5" Drivers (L and R) powered by a separate amp delivering 15w to each speaker
  • Total of 85w of power
  • Wood Cabinet
  • Line In and Out allowing you to hook up your device without bluetooth and connect multiple LumaOne speakers
  • Back Panel light controls for devices not connecting via LumaPlay App

Download the LumaPlay app and immediately gain complete control over the look and feel of your LumaOne. The LumaPlay app acts as the brains behind this powerful speaker. Import your music library or playlist from iTunes, or play directly from your favorite music streaming app, and let the show begin. Control the color of the lights, the speed at which they change, and the rhythm that they move too all with swipe of your finger.

The goal behind creating an app for the LumaOne was to truly give you the chance to create the atmosphere you desired for your listening experience. Whether your throwing the most badass party of the night or having drinks with a few friends, the LumaPlay app gives you the control over the vibe you set for each moment and song.

Since the app is currently in v1.0, our plan is to continue to make improvements and potentially use some of the money from this campaign (stretch goal) to add additional functionality for future releases. We have tons of ideas on new features and plan to get your feedback in order to prioritize those updates. 

Nothing can replace the energy and passion that happens at a show. However, here at LumaPlay, we think we can get pretty damn close. Our mission is to give you, the music lover/concert goer/party throwing fan, a speaker that will not only sound incredible, but create an atmosphere previously reserved for a show (and not take up a concert hall's worth of space). We also want to support the DJ’s and artists who are grinding it out night after night to create these unforgettable experiences for us. LumaPlay will soon be offering pro-level systems at a price that DJ’s of all caliber will be able to afford. At the end of the day, we want to create products that make your music listening experience better than you ever thought possible. 

And that is why we chose Kickstarter

We believe Kickstarter is the perfect platform to launch the LumaOne...so much so that we are offering the speaker for up to $200 off the retail value of $499. The funds raised from this campaign will go towards our costs for the first production run of LumaOne Speakers. All of our manufacturing is setup and ready to go after months and months of negotiations and refining of our product. Check out the production timeline below for more details, but we plan to get these out to our backers very quick. 


The LumaPlay team is made up professionals from every aspect of the music and high end audio industries.

Chad McKenzie - Co-Founder & CEO
Chad McKenzie - Co-Founder & CEO

Chad knows his stuff. Bottom line. He has spent a number of years in the home A/V business, making sure everyone's house is equipped with the most bad ass theatre system they can get.

Mason Murphy - Co-Founder & CTO
Mason Murphy - Co-Founder & CTO

Engineer wizard and mastermind, Mason is the man behind the design of the LumaOne. He has multiple patents issued for audio speaker design and LED technology and has had his products sold in stores like Target and Best Buy. Mason knows his stuff as well...do you see the running theme here?

Dex Palmer - CMO
Dex Palmer - CMO

Dex probably hates calling himself the CMO, because the truth is, Dex is the guy that wants to buy these speakers. He works with a handful of established and upcoming EDM artists on the record label he founded, Octal Sound. Dex is determined to get the LumaPlay speakers into your hands (and possibly his DJ rig).

FAQ

  • No, any device with an audio output can be connected to the LumaOne speaker. The lights can then be controlled from the back of the speaker itself. One of our stretch goals is to move the LumaPlay app over to different mobile operating systems, so hopefully in the near future, Android and other users will be able to use the app.

    Last updated:
  • 2.1 means that this speaker will give you the same sound as having a Left and Right speaker setup. It is made up of two smaller speakers for the let and right and a sub woofer in the middle for bass. Seriously, it sounds ridiculous and we promise you will love it.

    Last updated:
  • You make a lot more noise and have a lot more fun. Hooking up two speakers does not split the audio signal (although you could theoretically split them via a stereo cable).
